A cochlear implant is an electronic device that restores the sense of hearing. It is a hearing solution for people who have severe/ severe-profound hearing loss due to reduced inner-ear function and who receive limited benefit from hearing aids. Unlike hearing aids, which amplify sound, a cochlear implant converts sound into electrical impulses which are directly transferred to the hearing nerve leading to stimulation of the hearing center in the brain. This function is done by the normal cochlea which is bypassed by the cochlear implant.
Cochlear implants use a sound processor that fits behind the ear or off the ear. The processor captures sound signals and transmits them to a receiver implanted under the skin behind the ear. The receiver sends the signals to electrodes implanted in the snail-shaped inner ear (cochlea). The signals stimulate the auditory nerve, which then directs them to the brain.
Cochlear implants can improve communication and quality of life for people with hearing loss who receive little benefit from hearing aids. Increasingly, cochlear implants in both ears (bilateral) are accepted as standard care for the treatment of severe hearing loss — particularly for infants and children who are learning to speak and to process language.
Adults and children who lost hearing after learning to speak can also benefit from cochlear implants.
Results vary from person to person. Factors that can affect the outcomes of cochlear implantation include the age when hearing was lost and the length of time between hearing loss and cochlear implantation. For children, the best results occur with implantation at a young age. Research also indicates that young children who have cochlear-implant surgery develop better hearing and speech than similar children with hearing aids. For adults, the best results are associated with a shorter period of profound hearing loss before cochlear implantation. Adults with little or no experience of sound tend to benefit less from cochlear implants.
